2021 PVLDWriMo on Hiatus
The 2021 PVLDWriMo Program is taking a hiatus to retool the program to better serve our writers and the community. Look for us in 2022!
To keep up your November writing momentum, consider one or all of the following!
- Access free writing tutorials with your PVLD library cards from Linkedin Learning here: https://www.linkedin.com/learning-login/go/pvld
- Visit the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) site for inspiration and comradery and join one of its linked local or national writing groups: https://nanowrimo.org
- Use MeetUp to find local writing groups here or start your own. For inspiration on writing groups, enjoy this short essay Unexpected Gifts. Why Share Your Writing by local writers Jennifer Townsend, Rosa Kwon Easton, Rieko Mendez, and Holly Vanderdonck.
- Check out previous PVLD writing month anthologies from the Library.
- You've heard the phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Here is something different...how about select your favorite photo and tell its story as part of PVLD’s Your Story is the Peninsula Story project? Perhaps your photo describes our year of "pandemic living", growing up on the peninsula, or your involvement in the community. Take a look at the growing YSPS Collection for inspiration and see the Letter from the PVLD Archivist to learn more and to access the online form.
Why is this program not available?
PVLD is taking a break this year to plan out more engaging and inclusive National Writing Month programs. PVLDWriMo programming will return in November 2022.
